My Blog

I suppose that this is really a blog, though I hesitate to call it that. The real bloggers seem so much more interesting. I cover stuff which I find interesting, and I hope that you will too.

Topic: Pond New camera position
5 Jun 2001

I realized that the camera was facing south -- i.e. into the sun. I moved it round to the other side of the pond so that the sun will normally be behind the camera. This should improve the image.

Right now it is not pointing in quite the right direction, but I'll fix that in the next few days. It certainly does seem to work better. You can see the stems of some of the water lily leaves and the leaves floating on the surface.



The Doc Searls weblog -- he seems clueful and I read him.

Open source server for the Rio Receiver -- this is what I use.

Information about SPF (Sender Permitted From)

Neat description of the Gunnera Manicata -- a truly monstrous plant!
